Delaware County Foundation Offering Grants to Non-Profits

Delaware County non-profits have a chance at some grant money.

The Foundation for the Future of Delaware County offers grant money each year for projects that help the community by addressing a significant issue and helping a broad spectrum.

Foundation Chair Jerry Burke says they have over 72-thousand dollars in grant money available to give away this year.

Over the past decade, these grants have helped support a wide range of local groups, including schools, churches, fire departments, libraries and 4-H clubs. The largest grant a group can receive is five thousand dollars and any projects that receive a grant must be completed by the end of the year.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, January 31st. Applications can be found online at And if you’d like more information, contact Bev Rahe at Delaware County Economic Development at 927-3325.
